“VIVA LA REVOLUCION!” That was supposed to be the war cry of Teabagger lawyer Larry Klayman’s militant march on D.C. this week. Instead, Klayman’s Klan just learned the first rule of Astroturf Club: the illusion of popular support doesn’t necessarily translate into boots (or wheels, or loafers) on the ground.
Klayman, a former Justice Department prosecutor and lately “freedom fighter,” is credited as being one of the founding inspirations for the Tea Party movement. He’s also found something of a home in Ocala, FL, owing to his inherent oldness and whiteness. He’s a regular at the retired Klan — sorry — Tea Party rallies in the town square.
The other day, we reported on the shocking verdict from Klayman’s “Citizens’ Grand Jury.” The Kangaroo Kourt convicted Obama of being a black guy (by failure to appear, of course) and demanded that he “put down the Quran, and come out with his hands up.” He gave Obama until November to turn himself in to the million-strong lynch mob — jury — for hanging. Sentencing.
Klayman’s Klan collected in D.C. on November 19th, with every intention of hauling the usurper out of office. Unfortunately, Klayman was as many zeroes short of a million as he is bananas short of a full sundae. By the time he got to D.C., his million-man Citizens’ Army had dwindled to about 100 people.
To put things into perspective: That attrition rate is about 30,000 times higher than Napoleon’s disastrous march into and out of Russia.
Then again, the French army didn’t have hip surgery scheduled next month.
